About SmartFile

Headquartered in Indianapolis, SmartFile is made up of a team of tech enthusiasts that are passionate about innovation and customer experience.

Two serial entrepreneurs, John Hurley and Ben Timby, founded SmartFile in 2009. Their idea was to create a simple web-based FTP product, and in the fall of that year, SmartFile was released for public consumption.

Since then, SmartFile has served thousands of companies and has helped share millions of files in over 140 countries. From Fortune 500 companies to the one-man enterprise, SmartFile has been the trusted platform chosen by customers to move big data in a secure environment.

Most importantly, SmartFile is a customer-centric company, sharing the belief that the software we develop is something that we cannot solely take the credit for. The features and makeup of our product is a result of our communication with the people who matter, our customers.

SmartFile is a self-funded, debt-free venture that is continuing to grow at a fast pace.
